Skipping breakfast – common consequences and how to change this habit!

More and more people are skipping breakfast – starting with children on school days to always busy adults who often forget about the most important meal of the day.

A study conducted on 30,000 respondents showed that as many as 15% of people skip this meal every day, and a significantly larger number of participants delay breakfast for more than 2 hours after waking up.

The first reason why this is not a good decision is the lack of energy at the very start of the day when we need an energy source the most.

Another problem with skipping breakfast is the fact that later in the day, we will be hungrier because the body is likely already “starved” by lunchtime, meaning it is exhausted and seeks a larger quantity of food through increased appetite.

Therefore, try to introduce breakfast every morning.

You can gradually start with small meals, eating an omelet or oatmeal with an additional source of protein and fat each day for a more stable blood sugar level.

Each subsequent meal should be spaced 4 to 5 hours apart, with the last meal ideally eaten about 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.

This way, blood sugar levels will be more stable, and the need for larger amounts of food (primarily sugar) will be much lower.

Introducing new habits is not always easy, but the benefits you’ll see after just a few days will keep you on the path to a healthier diet and a more energetic life.
